 Our Horsforth team helps school children in South Africa

Manning Stainton Horsforth Branch has helped fund a community trip to South Africa to give school uniforms to 200 children living there, which were donated by pupils from Featherbank School in Horsforth.  

 

We funded the transportation costs of the school uniforms, which were taken over to South Africa by 25 volunteers living in the Horsforth area as part of a trip to organised by Horsforth Churches Together.

 

The trip was organised to help support Sethani, a registered charity which was established in 2004 to relieve poverty in KwaZulu-Natal, just north of Durban in South Africa. It works with the community in KwaNgcolosi, a semi-rural tribal area of KwaZulu Natal, aiming to relieve poverty and to empower the community, historically affected by the AIDS pandemic, through the provision of facilities and training.

Sarah Joseph, Branch Manager at our Horsforth branch, said: “We pride ourselves on helping out the local communities we operate in, as well as those further afield.

 

“Horsforth Churches Together have supported Sethani and the communities it supports in South Africa for the last 10 years, so we were more than happy to help when Featherbank School asked us if we could cover the costs of transporting the uniforms they were donating.”

 

Duncan Stow, a community outreach worker at Horsforth Churches Together, who organised the trip, added: “Sethani provides much-needed support and resources for the community of KwaNgcolosi, and we make regular trips over to deliver monetary donations and supplies, raised and donated by the local community in Horsforth.

 

“Manning Stainton’s generous donation enabled us to transport the uniforms donated by pupils at Featherbank School and 200 children living there now have high-quality clothing to wear.”  

 

We are told the uniforms are being proudly worn by the children in the community.
